Sleep

~ Z zzzz Z ~

Sleep what is it ?
Real deep sound 
Eyes don't open til six
Where is it ?
I don't think I'd know it if I saw it.

My person whom I live with snores.
And, that's being nice.
A big truck that fires all night long.
Add in a cold and no sleep.
 NONE.

I gave up and went to another room.
Threw this and that off of it.
In I went with a blanket and a Collie pup.
Later, the old Golden found us.

Only my snug as a bug in another
 bed didn't last long. 
The pup was confused.
Wasn't I supposed to be in the other room ?
That's when the I'm confused barking started.
Which woke up the snoring machine down the hall.

I have had a lot of coffee 
in my Crazy Cat Lady cup.
Yes, I own one of those. 
Thank you to another cat lady friend.
It holds a lot of coffee.
Not enough for today though.

I have an appointment at eleven.
How can I ?
I don't own enough makeup 
to cover up these old wrinkled bags.

Sleep .. What is it ?

Ha! I don't know any woman in our age group who gets sufficient sleep. :-)

But separate rooms could work in the long run, lots of people do it. My mom and her hubby have had their own bedrooms for years, because of Harry's snoring and leg cramps, etc.

I think my dad and his wife also mostly sleep in separate rooms now, because he's up and down at night, and snores too.

There's a good reason that in certain eras the husband and wife didn't share a bedroom to sleep.

Deep sigh of understanding. No amount of makeup... so true.

Why is sleep elusive when we most need it? Sis and her hubby also have separate rooms... because of her snoring.

Since I am the one who snores, I have to admit that it never bothers me...
But there are nights when I can't sleep, either. Usually, I just lie and listen to all the breathing. When I was pregnant, I used to get up and do embroidery in the middle of the night, but I don't have to worry about that any more!!!

Spring is here, so try and go outside and dig around in the dirt. Playing outside keeps me grounded, no pun intended. heers for a lovely start to the season of "new."

There comes a time in your life when you walk away from all of the drama and the people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right and pray for those who don’t. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of life, getting back up is living.
